Question S3W-39580

Interrogation of prisoners is a legal activity, but the website alleges that a different subsidiary of CACI International, working for the US Government in Iraq, was involved in human rights abuses at Abu Ghraib. The company vehemently denies these allegations and strongly deplores any form of abuse of human rights. The allegations of involvement in torture of inmates at Abu Ghraib have never been proved. Nor has the US Government, which court-martialled some of its troops over abuses at Abu Ghraib, taken any action against CACI or its subsidiary.
